5:01 pm
lapd officer declared war on police. and there is late word today. that another officer has been killed reportedly by dorner. grant lodes is standing by with what's happening right now. this is a very fluid situation. >> yes. here's what we know is happening right now: swat team members, deputies and officers believe they home in the big bear lake area. they do not know how the fire started. it is important to mention that he could still be inside. we just listened to a press conference and the past five minutes. they do not know where he is. and he is believed to be heavily armed. he could potentially could have escaped. if the
5:02 pm
past? they do not know where he is in the sand bernadine o deputy hdied. however, the secula second... san bernadino is in critical custody that was involved with the shoot out with christopher dorner. this standoff comes after dorner reportedly had two different shootouts with authorieis. multiple media outlets in los angeles are reporting that one deputy has died hospitalized after being shot. this cabinet is engulfed in flames and smoke that kevi capt >> also, the roads are going to stay in close i would say for at least a few hours, probably longer.
5:03 pm
>> cindy bauckman.. with the... >> pam: bad news conference is just wrapping up with big bear. if that news conference. we will bring you that latest information's however, alsojust in -- we have an audio recording of the earlier gun fight between dorner and law enforcement. let us take a listen. >> you will! (shots)
5:04 pm
again -- we know two officers were wounded today. within the hour. word that one of the two has died. christopher dorner is now suspected in four murders since sunday february 3rd. right now, the suspect is barricaded in a cabin. justine waldman is standing by with more on how the events have unfolded in the last few hours. >> reporter: the los angeles police department gave an update. >> today, about 12: they received a call of a stolen vehicle. near club view drive and this stolen
5:05 pm
vehicle was similar in appearance to christopher dorner. they immediately conducted a ground and air search that highway 38 & glass road or the suspect flaw fled into the road. and after that, he barricaded himself into a big bea r cabine just moments ago the los angeles police department gave an update on the search for chris dorner. here is a breakdown of how things unfolded today. one of the deputies. police, the fbi and swat teams have been combing the big bear area since last week in what's being considered one of the largest manhunts in southern california history. right now, charles clifford gives us a closer look at the area where all this is happening. >> reporter: the short time
5:06 pm
later, the suspect that matched the suspect's description of christopher dorner reportedly took this as christopher dorner. he was leader of the scene near highway 38/highway 38 and class road. he then abandoned the vehicle, and took off into the woods. after this, he has exchanged gunfire with two different su sheriff' one, however, has died. this, from the san bernadino police officer. and the former law enforcement is >> we are trying to
5:07 pm
understand exactly the tactics that are being employed at the mountains of the san bernadino ... department can you help us understand what is happening. >> as you know, i think the first step that law enforcement takes a step like that is establishing a secure perimeter. given, that i suspected this took place several hours ago, i would assume that they had pretty credible information that he was inside. and in terms of what has happened since then and why action was taken i cannot speculate. i can only understand that the tactical information and officer on the scene is well aware of these resources available
5:08 pm
to him. and the threat that the suspect, opposes. we are talking about the number of weapons that he has, and ammunition that the suspect has. in terms of the recent fire increase in defense i do not know not for me to speculate. how to his skills come into play of the tactics are being brought drawn up at this point? >> it is fair to assume that he understands police tactics and responding to a dangerous suspect. after he stole the car and got into the kevikevicainto the cabin
5:09 pm
based on his own experience. >> pam: with this fire, if indeed of law enforcement started this fire was set the strategy to smoke him out? >> that would be a strategy by hate to speculate weather or not they did it. and why they did it. you know, the circumstances at the scene at a large part dictate to what steps the officers take. >> pam: what would perhaps the level of adrenaline from the officers be right
5:10 pm
now? with previous deaths from one of their own? how were they try to keep your own emotions and adrenaline and check? >> they are professionals. on the other hand, there is nothing more devastating than losing a brother, sister officer in the line of fire. when i was the police chief in san francisco we lost officers and was one of the darkest moments in my life. >> pam: if this moves into the evening in this dense in complicated area? >> first of all, i think and i suspect that they have technology on their side. i am sure that the federal authorities have come and with and the equipment that they need. certainly, with night vision goggles and so forth. a whole variety of
5:11 pm
technologically advanced tools fell law enforcement can use. >> they're still no confirmation that he was in that cabin what would likely be the next step? >> again, i cannot really speculate. if the fire was started inside by who was ever inside it would be fairly safe to speculate that he started the fire. and that led to his own demise. if that was started by law enforcement or outside forces, than i do not know. i suspect that on the of events that took place today and the response of thesan bernadino which
5:12 pm
have done an outstanding job they have a good idea of weather or not he is in there. >> pam: nonetheless, that if he is inside that cabinet is not far from where this car was discovered not that long ago if he is in deep inside that cabin... >> correct. after we have been watching those news reports all day i think that it is going to be a couple of days before this all hashes out. if he can be confirmed has been in the house or in the custody before we go off the air tonight. in >> as you see one of your own take a turn with your former background as a
5:13 pm
police chief? >> as we go of their ranks of law enforcement we realize that one of our greatest responsibilities is for the safety of the officers that work for us. at any time if aaron officer is life after it's taken it is devastating. even though, i am sure that no law enforcement is to blame. you cannot help but they is there something that i could have done? it is a devastating feeling of lack of control. that we all have felt at some time. it is devastating. >> pam: the former police chief of san francisco is now teaching at usf, thank you so much. a very complicated set of the events of the san bernadino
5:14 pm
mountains grant? >> reporter: this continues to burn. this is the cabin where he has been hiding for the better part of today. this appears to have been collapsed. what was a home is now rubble and ash. it is not clear if the suspect, is in sight, christopher dorner or if he has escaped. when we come back, if he is inside and we do have a [ female announcer ] this is a special message from at&t.
